TASTING NOTES: A remarkable bouquet, beautifully edged with fruit and spice. A supple, smooth palate exhibits great elegance and aromatic complexity. TECHNICAL NOTES: The pot still at the Distillerie Poli is among the most ancient still functioning: the chambers are made entirely of copper, as they always used to be. The pomace is heated with currents of steam, and the process is totally artisanal: in this single-batch method, the pomace is loaded into the copper pot and distilled there. After the 3-hour batch cycle that distils the pomace, the processed skins are removed from the pot and a new batch of fresh pomace is loaded in, ready for another heating.
